Give Enough


I give you take
It stays the same
I thought maybe
You could change
Love is what you said
Truth is love is dead
For you it’s only lust
The feel of someone’s touch
Am I not enough
I gave you so damn much
But I couldn’t give enough

You took and never gave
Brought me only shame
In you, myself, my life
Everyday it feels the same
I was looking for a wife
Then you pierced me with that knife
You broke my soul apart
Sliced fragments from my heart
You broke my only trust
Because I couldn’t give enough

Is this the way to live
To never have and only give
My heart I gave to you
Then you shared it with my crew
I never wanted much
Purely simple truth and love
I guess nothing’s enough
You can only feel the touch
Of anyone you find
Whoever strikes your mind
You never give only take
You take it all away
I guess I couldn’t give enough
Love wasn’t enough
I couldn’t give you enough

Aw...this is sad in the

Aw...this is sad in the end..


many moons ago

I could have

thought this be true,

but love is never lost,

it's just removed 

from our view,

enough is always enough,

when enough has been done,

it just isn't always easy,

and rarely ever fun.


when it's seems 

nothing has been gained,

the truth remains in a seed,

It's usually plenty enough,

just not what filled the need.


when love's always sweet,

tough love is what's missing,

it's isn't always about,

all the hugging and kissing.


let go and let love,

show your true love the way,

sometimes it's the pain that cures,

the heart too shallow and grey.


blow it away,

and let go of expectation,

you'll find most times that even love,

needs a vacation!!!!

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
